Who gets hair extensions?
Hair extensions have been popularized by celebrities today who go from short
to long every other day it seems. In the past, hair extensions were
considered a luxury service only for celebrities and people that were rich.
Today, hair extensions are no longer just for celebrities. Because of the
increased demand for extension services, many stylists have received training
to attach/remove hair extensions and the industry as a whole has expanded
to include many different methods of attachment.
Below are some reasons that men and women are getting hair extensions
*Cover up a bad hair cut
*Lengthen a too-short hair cut
*Get long hair for a special occasion, i.e. prom, wedding, graduation, party,
*Cover up or disguise thinning hair
*Cover up damaged or over-treated hair
Beautiful long hair is just an appointment away. A stylist can add beautiful long hair extensions in just a few hours time.
The results can be incredible- no one will even know you have hair extensions. Many celebrities wear hair extensions for this very reason.
This is a great style for this great star of the silver screen. Nicole has chosen a classically beautiful style which features long layers at the very ends of her hair to enhance her stunning curl. Nicole's cut is a great feminine option for all hair textures and most face shapes.
*Sick and tired of hair style, want something new
*Love long hair and don’t want to wait for hair to grow out
*Want to impress people
*Want to get highlight/lowlights without chemical processing
If you want long hair now, you can afford it AND you are suitable for hair
extensions—then go ahead and get hair extensions!
Who shouldn’t get hair extensions?
You should schedule 2-4 hair extension consultations with
different hair extension stylists to get different opinions on
whether your hair will support hair extensions.
Not everyone can wear hair extensions. Below is a short list of
hair situations that may not be suitable for extensions.
1. Anyone that is suffering from significant hair loss or is currently taking
medication for hair loss. Attaching hair extensions to already frail hair will
only make matters worse. Check out methods where the extensions are not
attached directly to your natural hair.
2. Anyone that has breakage in the first 2-4 inches of their hair at the root
area. This is where the hair extensions will be attached. If the hair is already
damaged, it will not be able to support the weight of human or even synthetic
3. Anyone who does not spend time styling or maintaining their hair. Long
hair takes extra time and work to make it look good. It will take you longer to
shampoo, condition, brush, dry and style long hair. If you don't properly take
care of hair extensions they can matte and tangle causing serious damage to
your natural hair.
4. Anyone who is currently taking medication or treatment for cancer. Most
hair stylists recommend that you wait 3-6 months after your treatment has
ended to think about getting hair extensions.
5. Anyone suffering from psoriasis, eczema, skin allergies or excessive skin
sensitivities. These issues do not mix well with hair extensions. You should
treat the condition first and then think about getting hair extensions.
